I hosted this swap. I just couldn't help myself. I could already see in my mind how cute that they would all be hanging on the front of my fireplace. Each of these adorable tiny Christmas cards had to have a tiny envelope included that so each person that was in this swap would have the fun of opening each card that they received. I have to admit that making the tiny envelopes were the hardest part of this swap. I spent the best part of one day working out the perfect size for these envelopes and another day making them. It seemed a challenge for me. After the envelopes the cards were easy!
THESE ARE THE CARDS I MADE
I went to Michael's to find some Christmas sxrapbook paper. Once again all they had was those paper packs that I hate so much. Luckily as I was leaving the store I walked by a bin of Christmas note cards. These were longer than most note cards so I was able to cut three background from each card. Now I had the backgrounds for $1.50. Far better than a pack of Christmas paper for $20.00. I edged each card with gold leaf and using double sided tape attached the background onto the double fold card. Inside of each card using my Silhouette and pen I wrote the message "Have A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year". Then I put glittery tape across them and mounted an embellishment on the front of each tiny Christmas card.
THESE ARE THE CARDS IN THE SWAP
This was a really fun swap. Seeing all these tiny Christmas cards was so much fun. It was so much fun that I think that I will host this swap again next year. I loved the way that they all looked hanging on the front of my fireplace.
